There are several good reasons why you may not want to start off your day by cracking open an egg. Eggs are chock full of saturated fat and cholesterol, and a recent study found that an egg-eating habit can be just as bad for you as a smoking habit. According to the study, the narrowing of the carotid artery in egg-yolk eaters was found to be two-thirds that of smokers.
Or perhaps you've been intrigued by new studies coming out about how important your gut bacteria are for your overall health. One such study found that eggs yolks contain a compound called lecithin, which the bacteria in your gut convert into a chemical known as TMAO. High levels of TMAO have been linked to an increased risk for a heart attack or stroke.
Whatever the reason may be, these amazing recipes will make it a lot easier for you to skip your morning omelet (at least one that's made with eggs!).
